Frostbite Crank Up
Slide Show HERE and video HERE
Another year winds to a close with the pancake breakfast at the East Boyleston Fire House and the Frost Bite Crank Up. And a fine year it has been! I visited many fine shows and took lots of photos and videos. Had lots of good fellowship with friends and members of the model/antique engine fraternity and learned many new things along the way.
After an absence of one year the Frostbite Crank Up resumed at a new location just a few miles from its' old place with renewed vigor and interest.
Rich Hubbard, Russ Steeves, Norm Jones and I met at the firehouse at :00 for what has become an annual tradition pancake breakfast. I had left Preston CT (about 75 miles south of Boyleston) with about a quarter tank of gas intending to stop in Oxford to fill up. I got off exit 23b on I290 and passed a Shell station undergoing renovation and thought to myself, self, good thing I didn't plan on getting gas there. Holy smokes! I looked at the at the gas gage and figured I was about one mile from getting out an pushing. Thankfully there was another gas station close by and I filled up the car with more gas than I knew it could hold. Lucky!
We got to the show and Roy Bear and Eddie Moose took up station in the back of the van to keep an eye on things.
Apparently I am not the only who travels with companions.
